Benefits of Membership

Legal Services Benefit

We are proud to announce a complimentary legal services program. An attorney, Deborah Williamson, has agreed to provide one complimentary consultation of not more than one hour of attorney or legal assistant time. The one hour is not intended as an entitlement of 60 minutes to each MPA member, but is provided to establish a cap at which the consultation being provided is no longer complimentary. The free initial consultation is to review issues related to an MPA member's professional practice. Ms. Williamson is on the web at: www.djwilliamsonlegal.com. Members who are interested in taking advantage of this benefit, please contact the MPA offices for referral information.
